Well, there are no strawberries on Strawberry Peak. It is a desert mountain! It got its name from being shaped like a strawberry resting on its base, apparently.

I got up early, and started the hike at 0515 in the dark. It was nice to see the stars against a black sky. The hike begins at Red Box (Mt Wilson Road turn off), and is the same as taken for Mt Lawlor. I used my headlamp for a while. Temperature was cool in the mid 60s. At the Strawberry/Lawlor saddle took a use trail west up the peak, quite steep in places.
At the summit, the 2m noise level was high from Mt Wilson, but made quite a few QSOs on 2m anyway, the first being with Mike N6MKW on Frazier Mountain CC-003. I could hear Charles KM6CEM, unfortunately he could not hear me. Then HF, 20m was OK but not much on 30m. Dan NA6MG kindly spotted me on 2m and 20m. Worked Chris K6CMG just as he was pulling in to work, he put out a call on 2m to see if anyone was on a summit!

About 6 miles RT, 1600 feet gain. Took me 2h 15m up, 1h 40m down. Drank 3 pints of water on this hike. Temperature was about 82F back at Red Box
